Autumn Season 2010

Christopher Hampton's adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos's famous episodic novel offers a chilling insight into the decedent and sexually corrupt world of the twilight years of the French aristocracy. When two ex-lovers decide to turn the art of seduction into a game through which to manipulate and exact revenge on those around them the consequences prove devastating and tragic!

'Hampton's achievement is to have preserved the satanic magnetism of the twin conspirators while going all out for social comedy.' -
